25 weeks

I cannot believe that I am almost 26 weeks along!  Where has all the time gone?  This pregnancy has flown by and I honestly have no real complaints.  I love to feel little Emma poke me and move around. It's her gentle reminder that I am living a different, and very important, purpose right now.  I am embracing my weight gain and body shape change...for the most part.  I do seriously wonder whether I will ever be the same shape again though.  My weight has NEVER fluctuated since freshman year in college, so it's scary that it is now.  I have no idea what I will be like after the baby or in a year.  Lord knows, I am not much of an exerciser...I really dislike sweating if we're being honest.  And I try to eat healthy, but I don't have a lot of self control when it comes to holding back on what I want.  Right now, I am just going with the flow, and let's face it, if I can't fit into my old clothes for awhile..or ever again...then there will be some VERY happy girls who will:)  I have learned that I can get by with much LESS clothing that what I had..and happily.  Shoes and accessories, however, are a different story!  I still love my jewels, bags, and scarves....just can't get enough AND you never grow out of those!  But honestly, pregnancy has taught me that I had way too much to begin with, so I am excited to scale down a bit, which is good since I am in serious clean out mode in the house.

No progress on the nursery yet...and Brent is slowly trekking along with the changing table.  (Did I mention he was building that by hand?  Yes..and I can't wait!)  It has been rainy and cold every weekend since he started, so it makes getting far pretty impossible.  I am waiting for the living room to turn into shop any day now.

Love how Sunflower is ALWAYS on the bed watching while I take a picture...she could at least offer some pose suggestions or take the photo for me for a better shot:)
